Excellent! Very nice example of a weapon I was completely unaware of. I wonder if the Daisy 22 rifles will be in this category some day...
Sheridan (the pellet gun people) KNOCABOUT Single Shot .22 LR
Was it perhaps produced by Hartford Arms, the predecessor of High Standard? During college about 100 year ago it seems, one girl's mother had a Hartford Arms.22, serial #609. Don't ask me why I remember numbers like that...How about a Magazine fed, single shot .22 LR called the Fiala? Here's my "incomplete" Model 1920. Designed for use in the Arctic and Antarctic you have to manually push the side forward to cock the gun. Full kits came with a variety of barrels; and unlike mine, the barrels have front sights!
A fine example of elegant simplicity. What a stark contrast to the polymer bricks we have today.Some of you guys have some beauties. I have only one single shot, a J. Stevens Tip Up .22. A model 35 I think.
According to the book "L. Stevens Arms & Tool Company" by Joseph T. Vorisek you have post WWI Model 35 Offhand with the stamped trigger guard produced from 1923 - 1942. It was offered in 22lr, 22WFR, and 25 rimfire.Some of you guys have some beauties. I have only one single shot, a J. Stevens Tip Up .22. A model 35 I think.
That's a beauty. When I was kid I had a double barrel cap gun with big hammers that looked a lot like that though it didn't break open.Can I put a double barrel here? It`s a .50 caliber teat fire something. No makers name, figure it`s some european maker probably in the 1830`s?? A collector friend gave it to me almost fifty years ago. It has two holes drilled for a spring clip to put the gun in a belt or sash. He thought it might have been a pirates "boarding pistol". Has two folding triggers.
